“Ebola is a big lie” – according to a man called “Nana Kwame” – most likely a pseudonym – living in Ghana, Ebola was brought to West Africa, to 4 countries for 4 specific reasons by – no one less than The Red Cross. This article is rocketing the internet for the last couple of days, for example in “Spirit Science and Metaphysics” http://www.spiritscienceandmetaphysics.com/ebo-lie-man-living-in-ghana-confirms-ebola-is-a-hoax/ – and was translated into Spanish and published by the Peruvian newspaper LaPrimera, a paper that regularly seeks to dissect the truth from the flood of lies emitted by the Peruvian MSM.
The very credible story was already at least partially corroborated by other web articles including the one by Timothy Alexandre Guzman, recounting the story by Dr. Cyril Broderick, a Liberian University Professor. According to Dr. Broderick, the US Department of Defense (DoD) has contracted a Canadian pharmaceutical company, Tekmira, to conduct Ebola research on humans in Guinea and Sierra Leone, just shortly before the outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone.
The West Africa epidemic was declared in March 2014. In addition, Broderick states “It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone”.
He asks the obvious – “Are there others?”
‘A newly released video shows Turkish border forces chatting with the ISIL Takfiri militants.
The amateur footage, which was released on YouTube on Tuesday, is said to have been filmed in the Zarova Hill near the Syria-Turkey border.
The video has once again raised questions over Turkey’s controversial stance towards the ISIL terrorist group.
Ankara has been severely criticized in recent weeks for blocking any delivery of military, medical or humanitarian assistance into Kobani, where the Takfiri terrorists are feared to be aiming at massive bloodletting.’
‘“On July 17, 2014 a Boeing 777 of Malaysia Airlines (flight MH17) crashed over eastern Ukraine. All 298 passengers were killed, including 193 Dutch. The Netherlands were given charge of the investigation into the cause of the disaster, but signed a cover-up deal with Kiev, and thus became a pawn in an international political game.
Unvarnished Cold War rhetoric makes a comeback, in which Putin is the ultimate bad guy. The West labels his words as poisonous propaganda. Meanwhile, it seems, everyone involved in the investigation suffers from a tunnel vision. Can we be sure that the investigators do their work independently and objectively?’
‘A Labour MP who accused former Home Secretary Leon Brittan of ‘improper conduct with children’ was last night defended by a colleague.
Jim Hood used a Commons debate on the 1984/5 miners’ strike on Tuesday to suggest that those who took part in the industrial action will not be ‘surprised’ by the allegations against Lord Brittan.
The remarks – protected from slander and contempt of court laws by parliamentary privilege – were branded ‘disgusting’ by business minister Matthew Hancock.’
‘Music videos, “selfies” and “sexting” have led to the sexual exploitation of children becoming the “norm” in some areas, a report claims.
The inquiry, which Theresa May, the Home Secretary, described as “alarming”, found that some girls were regularly approached by older men and urged to get into cars on their way home from school, but that such instances were “part of everyday life” because they had become normalised.
It also said that almost 650 children reported missing in Greater Manchester this year were at risk of exploitation.’
‘He seemed somewhat out of place amid the traditional, old-fashioned ceremony of Changing the Guard.
But this heavily armed soldier in combat fatigues proved every bit as much of an attraction to the camera-wielding tourists at Horse Guards Parade in London yesterday.
Troops with machine guns have been deployed alongside their red-clad sword-bearing comrades as a security measure following the shooting of a ceremonial guard outside the Canadian parliament.’
‘The long delay over Sir John Chilcot’s report on the Iraq war is fuelling fears of an “establishment stitch-up” a senior Tory MP warned today.
Sir John Chilcot launched his inquiry four years ago and was supposed to report by the end of 2011.
But Cabinet Office minister Rob Wilson today admitted that the Government still had no idea when Sir John will produce his findings.’
‘The Queen met the Emir of Qatar at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday during his first official visit to Britain since 2013.
Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani has been expected to reject allegations that his country is funding Islamic State militants.
Qatar is one of the world’s richest countries and has invested heavily in British firms and property. Amongst its investments are London’s tallest building, the Shard, which was funded by the Qatari royal family, and the upmarket Harrods department store which is owned by sovereign wealth fund Qatar Investment Authority.
However British media reports in the run-up to the trip have focused on long-running allegations from neighbouring Gulf Arab states that Qatar is using its vast oil and gas wealth to back Islamists across the Middle East.’
‘Qatar tonight refuted was claims that money for UK firms working on World Cup 2022 venues is being siphoned off to ISIS extremists.
The Commons was told British firms awarded contracts for the project in Qatar are being short-changed while some of the unpaid cash has ended up in the hands of the Islamic extremists in Syria.
But Qatari Prime Minister Sheikh Abdullah bin Nasser bin Khalifa Al Thani told MailOnline it is a ’serious allegation’ which the government ’refutes completely’.’
‘More than £1billion from taxpayers was given in aid to Ethiopia while its security forces tortured, killed and raped, campaigners claimed yesterday.
Amnesty International has documented thousands of shockingly brutal abuses against citizens suspected of political opposition.
The human rights group’s report follows calls for greater scrutiny by Britain and other donors to ensure their money does not support state-sanctioned killings and brutality.’
Tonight’s guest is Ken O’Keefe. He is an Irish-Palestinian citizen and activist and former United States Marine and Gulf War veteran who attempted to renounce US citizenship in 2001.He led the human shield action to Iraq and was a passenger on the MV Mavi Marmara during the Gaza flotilla raid. He disarmed two Israeli commandos. He is a regular contributor on RT and Press TV.
‘Tesco’s senior bosses face the potential threat of jail after the Serious Fraud Office launched a criminal investigation into the ailing supermarket’s £263m accounting scandal.
The SFO confirmed that its director, David Green, has opened a probe into “accounting practices” at Tesco following the huge black hole in the profits of the UK’s biggest retailer which was first revealed a month ago.
Accountants Deloitte and law firm Freshfields – appointed by Tesco – found the accounting error was worse than first thought and that the supermarket had been overstating its earnings for some years.’
‘A punitive approach to drug abuse including locking up addicts fails to curb levels of addiction, a Home Office study warns today, as MPs stage the first Commons debate on drugs legislation in a generation.
The report suggests treating possession of drugs as a health – rather than criminal – matter reduces drug deaths and HIV infection rates without increasing addiction levels.
Its findings, which have been kept under wraps for three months amid a Coalition row, will be used as ammunition by supporters of a complete overhaul of the country’s 43-year-old drugs laws.’
‘US relations with Israel have plunged to new depths of bitterness and hostility as senior officials in the Obama administration decried Binyamin Netanyahu as a “chickenshit prime minister”, “coward” and a man more interested in his own political survival than peace.
The furious assessment delivered in anonymous but no-holds barred comments in an interview with the American journalist Jeffrey Goldberg in the Atlantic underline a state of anger with Netanyahu that is characterised as “red hot”.
The remarks are particularly telling in having been made to Goldberg, a Washington insider who has interviewed both Obama and Netanyahu, and who warned US-Israeli relations were in a “full-blown crisis” that could only get worse after the midterm elections.’
‘David Cameron will risk a split in the Conservative party just weeks before a crucial by- election as he pledged that Britain will remain part of controversial European Arrest Warrant.
The Prime Minister said that he will hold a Commons vote on the controversial European measure, which he said protects Britain from terrorists and organised criminals, despite scores of Tories threatening to rebel against the Government.
Mr Cameron was immediately accused by MPs of “throwing in the towel” in Rochester, which the Tories are expected to lose to Mark Reckless, who triggered the election by defecting to Ukip.’
‘An event organizer in Utah was flabbergasted when police stormed his Halloween party over the weekend and proceeded to monitor partygoers for signs of dancing, even though a permit had been secured with the city in advance.
Cops terminated the Heart of Dixie’s third annual Monster Mash in St. George, Utah, this past Friday, and issued threats of felony arrest to the event’s organizers for violating a city ordinance which prohibits “public dancing” without the approval of the city council.’
‘A federal land grab being imposed under the guise of environmental protection in Southern Nevada has been labeled an act of “deliberate retaliation” by Cliven Bundy, the rancher who was at the center of a standoff between BLM agents and armed militia groups earlier this year.
On Sunday, the Bundy family posted a Facebook entry which asserted that, “the federal government is mounting retaliations against the Bundy family and the Southern Nevada people,” after it was announced that the feds intended to designate around 1.8 million acres of land around their Gold Butte range as critical to the environment.
The initial dispute between Bundy and the feds, which culminated in an armed standoff between BLM agents and Bundy supporters back in April, centered around more than $1 million in grazing fees which authorities claimed Bundy owed stretching back two decades.’
‘For many of us we have been brought up within a social structure that demands we become a ‘productive member’ of our society; thus much emphasis is placed upon developing individual skills so that we can compete with each other for social betterment. Inherent in this is a residual fear that if we open ourselves too much to others we may lose our ‘competitive edge’ and defined sense of individuality.
Much of mainstream media (aka propaganda) has exploited the mythological images, collective stereotypes, and subconscious signifiers that play on our collective vulnerabilities and social fears. Knowledge has more or less trickled down to the average person through heavily filtered channels, and most often has been doctored, amended, and/or edited.
The end result has been not knowledge but consensus information, or ‘allowed’ information. It has served the elite power structure well that people in general have not awoken to the understanding that humanity possesses incredible capacity and inherent resources for creative expansion and evolutionary development.’
‘Google wants your body to host a search engine, using a pill to diagnose health issues like cancer or heart disease. The nanoparticles inside would travel through the bloodstream and send their findings back to an exterior sensor.
The project, run by the company’s secretive Google X research and development division, is still in its infancy, the Associated Press reported. The technology ‒ which would be less than one-thousandth the width of a red blood cell ‒ would use disease-detecting nanoparticles, ingested via a pill, that send data back to a sensor on a wristband.’
‘With over 9,000 people dead from cholera since the devastating January 2010 earthquake, the last thing Haiti needed was another rigged election. But the nation’s role as wage floor for multinational corporations, combined with its geographic importance to the CIA-orchestrated Columbian cocaine trade, made the November 28th 2012 election fraud which provoked fiery protests all too predictable.’
‘The U.S. Air Force says it is not halting its use of Depleted Uranium weapons, has recently sent them to the Middle East, and is prepared to use them.
A type of airplane, the A-10, deployed this month to the Middle East by the U.S. Air National Guard’s 122nd Fighter Wing, is responsible for more Depleted Uranium (DU) contamination than any other platform, according to the International Coalition to Ban Uranium Weapons (ICBUW). “Weight for weight and by number of rounds more 30mm PGU-14B ammo has been used than any other round,” said ICBUW coordinator Doug Weir, referring to ammunition used by A-10s, as compared to DU ammunition used by tanks.’
‘The frustration from Charleston Daily Mail’s editor and publisher Brad McElhinny was clear when TPM reach him by phone on Tuesday afternoon.
“I’ve had better days,” he said.
His exasperation was understandable. On Saturday, Don Surber, the West Virginia paper’s lone editorial columnist, took to his personal blog to offer his thoughts on “police brutality” and the killing of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown.’
‘The EU’s controversial chief scientist, Anne Glover, has been called a dangerous imbecile by the Distinguished Professor of Risk Engineering at New York University, Nassim Nicholas Taleb. Taleb was responding on Twitter to the fact that Glover argues for abandoning the Precautionary Principle in relation to GM crops.
The reason for the Precautionary Principle is, of course, to make sure that if things go wrong, they don’t go catastrophically wrong – and that, Taleb has pointed out, is precisely the danger with GM crops, as they pose systemic risks to ecologies and human health. Indeed, Taleb, who famously predicted the global economic crash, says that even “calling the GMO approach ‘scientific’ betrays a very poor – indeed warped – understanding of probabilistic payoffs and risk management.”‘
‘A combination of factors is pushing the United States to “disengage” from Israel, a regime that will not last a month without US support, says an analyst.
“Times are changing for Israel, they spend a lot of money to manipulate public opinion, all of Hollywood and mass media is Jewish-controlled (and) Zionist-controlled, and people realize the lies that are being told to them on their Nightly News on a daily basis,” he said.
“But the American people can see through this. The American people, particularly at university level, are smart (and) well-educated and they have this implicit sense of fairness,” he added.
“All of this combined” Harris said, “is adding up to what is going to be a perfect storm for Israel where the people of the US are going to reject Israel, and that is the process that we are beginning to see the early stages of.”’
‘A video attracting a lot of attention online proves that multiculturalism packs a punch in Canada, when the filmmaker’s “social experiment” demonstrates how some Canadians will leap to the defence of a Muslim person singled out for abuse, even in the wake of recent attacks by self-radicalized Islamists.
Omar Albach — an 18-year-old student at York University — and two friends — tested Canada’s racial tolerance by staging a charade involving an actor dressed head-to-toe in traditional Islamic garb and another Caucasian actor who accosts him in public.
They recorded what transpired on a video posted to YouTube, ‘Canadians react to Ottawa shooting racism,’ that has attracted a lot of attention since it was posted on Monday, garnering more than 400,000 views as of Wednesday morning.’
”Some legal cases do more than raise eyebrows — they push the legal envelope to change the law. Such is a federal case in Las Vegas now working its way through the courts. The question is whether federal agents can disrupt service to a house and then, masquerading as helpful technicians, gain entry to covertly search the premises in hopes of finding evidence that might later justify a search warrant.
The defendants in this case are not your everyday Americans. They are, in fact, Chinese gamblers who were staying in Las Vegas at Caesar’s Palace earlier this year.
‘The next front in Germany’s effort to keep up with the digital revolution lies in a factory in this sleepy industrial town.
At stake isn’t what the Siemens AG plant produces–in this case, automated machines to be used in other industrial factories–but how its 1,000 manufacturing units communicate through the Web.
As a result, most units in this 100,000-plus square-foot factory are able to fetch and assemble components without further human input.’
‘A Canadian reporter has introduced a new phrase, “terrorist truthers”, as the initial stage in creating a new semantic club to use against critics of government ops and of false flag attacks.
The reporter, Brian Lilley, has used the occasion of the alleged attack on the Canadian Parliament–almost certainly itself an arranged event–to assail those who do not condemn it as “terrorism”.
While that sounds like typical politics, where right-wingers are eager to politicize such events and left-wingers more cautious and hesitant, a bit more appears to be going on here than that.
Joshua Blakeney, for example, has observed that this event appears tailor-made to be used as a justification to silence critics of Israel. And it also looks as though the phrase, once introduced, will then gradually be extended in meaning to include 9/11 Truthers and 7/7 Truthers, as David Cameron, the UK PM, recently proposed.’
‘If you want to see the future of the shale industry — what today’s drilling rush will leave behind — come to Bradford, Pennsylvania.
A small city, it was home to one of America’s first energy booms, producing over three quarters of the world’s oil in 1877. A wooden oil rig towering over a local museum commemorates those heady days, marking the first “billion dollar oil field” in the world.
But times have changed dramatically in Bradford. Most of the oil has been pumped out, leaving residents atop an aging oil field that requires complicated upkeep and mounting costs. Since its height in the 1940’s, Bradford’s population has steadily declined, leaving the city now home to only 8,600 people, down from over 17,000.’
‘Increasingly, Facebook is being accused of censoring material that users post on the world’s largest social media website, prompting outrage and confusion from many who see hypocrisy in the site’s rules.
In one recent instance, as reported by InfoWars.com, multiple users of the site have complained that they were not able to share some YouTube videos from the alternative media site, as well as others (including Natural News):
When attempting to share videos by Infowars and by social commentators E.T. Williams and Mark Dice, Facebook users received error messages preventing them from sharing the videos even though they were able to share videos from other, non-political YouTube channels.’
‘California’s Proposition 37, an initiative proposed in 2012 that would’ve required the mandatory labeling of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), set the precedent for other states attempting to pass similar legislation.
Prop 37 failed because of illegal, unethical and snake-like tactics carried out by the biotech industry, not because people didn’t want it. Even though it failed, the people still won, because it drew massive awareness and support to the issue of the Right To Know what’s in our food.’
‘Across the political and media elite in Australia, a silence has descended on the memory of the great, reforming prime minister Gough Whitlam, who has died. His achievements are recognised, if grudgingly, his mistakes noted in false sorrow. But a critical reason for his extraordinary political demise will, they hope, be buried with him.
Australia briefly became an independent state during the Whitlam years, 1972-75. An American commentator wrote that no country had “reversed its posture in international affairs so totally without going through a domestic revolution”. Whitlam ended his nation’s colonial servility. He abolished Royal patronage, moved Australia towards the Non-Aligned Movement, supported “zones of peace” and opposed nuclear weapons testing.’
‘The definition of terrorism seems simple enough. The Merriam-Webster dictionary states that it is “the use of violent acts to frighten the people in an area as a way of trying to achieve a political goal.”
But America’s leaders and corporate media have a radically different definition of terrorism.
“In the mainstream American media, the ‘terrorist’ label is usually reserved for those opposed to the policies of the U.S. and its allies,” Tomas Kapitan, professor emeritus at Northern Illinois University, recently wrote in a column for the New York Times. This terrorist label is usually slapped on Muslims, even when they use violence in the context of a war zone like the Gaza Strip over the summer.’
‘Scientists warned that an earthquake could take out Fukushima. The Japanese ignored the warning … and even tore down the natural seawall which protected Fukushima from tidal waves.
Fukushima is getting worse. And see this and this.
Have the Japanese learned their lesson? Are they decommissioning nuclear plants which are built in dangerous environments?
Of course not!
Instead, they’re re-starting a nuclear plant near a volcano which is about to blow …’
‘The Guardian has about the best coverage to be found in the mainstream media of the Israel-Palestine conflict – which tells you quite how bad everyone else is.
Today the paper’s readers’ editor, Chris Elliott, ponders complaints about its coverage. Not surprisingly, many of them are from the Israeli embassy, which says it is concerned about the Guardian’s disproportionate interest in Israel-Palestine, implying that this is evidence of anti-semitism.
Actually it is quite the opposite. It is evidence of the Guardian’s historic and current support for the state of Israel, though not the occupation. Elliott alludes to this obliquely as he points out that the paper’s most famous editor, C P Scott, was instrumental in getting the British government to issue the Balfour Declaration. The Guardian’s pride in having helped to create a Jewish state is still palpable at the paper (as I know from my years there), especially among senior Jewish editors who influence much of the conflict’s coverage – yes, that is a reference to Jonathan Freedland, among others.’
‘Following the death last week of legendary Washington Post executive editor Ben Bradlee at age 93, there have been many warm remembrances of his tough-guy style as he sought “holy shit stories,” journalism that was worthy of the old-fashioned demand, “stop the presses.”
Many of the fond recollections surely are selective, but there was some truth to Bradlee’s “front page” approach to inspiring a staff to push the envelope in pursuit of difficult stories – at least during the Watergate scandal when he backed Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein in the face of White House hostility. How different that was from Bradlee’s later years and the work of his successors at the Washington Post!’
‘The uprising across Haiti to demand the resignation of President Michel Martelly grew again this week with massive marches in the capital and several towns on Oct. 26, 2014, the date on which Martelly had promised elections earlier this year.
As they had just nine days earlier on Oct. 17, tens of thousands of Haitians took to the streets again to demand the holding of elections, respect for the Constitution, and the continuation of the democratic process in Haiti. But for this to happen, there is a growing consensus around the demonstrators’ principal demand: “Martelly must go!”
In addition to Port-au-Prince, demonstrators marched in Aux Cayes, Petit Goâve, and Cap Haïtien.’
‘Lebanese security forces have exchanged fire with al-Qaeda-linked militants in the Bekaa Valley near the border with Syria.
Local sources said the clashes erupted outside the towns of Deir al-Ghazal and Qusaya on Wednesday when al-Nusra Front militants tried to infiltrate into Lebanon from Syria.
The Lebanese army, supported by Syrian soldiers on the other side of the border, halted the terrorists’ advance, with Hezbollah fighters also giving a hand to prevent their infiltration.’
‘A Palestinian member of the Israeli parliament (Knesset) has been suspended for six months because of her pro-Palestinian stance.
Sixty-eight Israeli lawmakers voted to expel Haneen Zoabi on Wednesday following a ruling by the Knesset Ethics Committee on July 29.
Back in June, Zoabi refused to condemn the abduction of three Israeli settlers, which Tel Aviv blamed on Palestinians. She has also been blamed for calls on Palestinians to hold anti-Israel protests.’
‘A new federal lawsuit in the United States seeks immediate release of a government report about how American charities contribute to Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program.
The Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy has filed a lawsuit in the DC District Court to obtain an unclassified study conducted in 1987 for the Pentagon titled “Current Technology Issues in Israel.”
The closely-held report named three institutions– Israel’s Weizmann Institute, Technion University, and Hebrew University– which raise “substantial tax-exempt charitable funding through affiliates in the United States.”’
Why would these people attempt to damage the work of someone who was at the front line 25 years ago before there was a ‘truth movement’ and has already done more to alert people to the truth worldwide than this lot will do collectively if they live to be a thousand?
Who benefits? The System.
Why would they be so quick to criticise the UK Column which is way further down the rabbit hole than they will ever be prepared to go?
Who benefits? The System.
You can expect some major attempts to discredit me in the next few months which are bubbling in the background at the moment because I am getting far too close to the truth and they know that I won’t be intimidated or silenced.
I take it as a compliment and I’ll just run at them quicker.
Watch this space and all that.
